Four people were arrested over the weekend after police found drugs and counterfeit bills in their car during a traffic stop. 

On Saturday, a Mexia police officer was conducting security checks when one of the employees informed him that someone just left the business after attempting to use a counterfeit $100 bill. 

The employee was able to provide a description of the person and the vehicle they were driving, leading officers to conduct a traffic stop.

During the traffic stop, officers found marijuana, other controlled substances, $3,434 in cash, $1,100 in counterfeit $100 bills, and numerous recent high dollar purchases including a Rolex watch and jewelry.
